POLY PUNK PATCHWORK Skirt
-- Pseudo Stripes, Pseudo Punk
-- Red, black Yellow Chevron
-- Enough fabric left for ONE
-- choose XS, SMALL or MEDIUM only

Vintage polyester fabric is just soooo BAAAD! This faux patchwork strips material was so gawd-awful it was wonderful. But I had no idea as to its real potential. I'd call this skirt reconstructed or upcycled, except the fabric is vintage virgin, NBS -- Never Been Sewed.

The body of this miniskirt is simulated patchwork stripes. The colors of black, red, white & gray are jazzed up with a yellow stripe with tiny flowers, and a red stripe with blueish flowers, all in a vintage polyester knit with some stretch. In this A-line version, the stripes make a chevron on the sides -- so 1970's! And this fabric dates from that Leisure Suit era , about 1971, when polyester started to copy the grannie patchwork patterns of Gunne Sax and Holly Hobby, and the hippies. Counterculture gone very, very, wrong!

The ruffle is a washable (cold) permanently pleated strip, gathered & edge-serged in black, in a heavy, glossy polyester satin. It's an amazing fabric.

All topped off with a 2-1/2" wide red waist band of very soft cottony stretch.

The result is a skirt that channels my Punk when worn over fishnets as shown here, or my Beatnik when worn over black tights in the smaller version on another listing.

I still have just enough fabric for one more skirt. it's a PSYCHEDELIC PUNK DREAM!
